Both you and the Academy have been fortunate to have had the services of former Alumni Association Board members Troy Malbon ’89, Steve Rendall ’96, Stephen (Jack) Spratt ’93, and Ben Strickland ’95. Each of them has put forth a tremendous amount of energy and enthusiasm in supporting the cause of MMA and the alumni body. I know I was speaking for all of us when I passed along my personal thanks after the recent election. It means big shoes to fill for incoming board members Tom Daley ’71, Molly Eddy ’07, Chris Mercer ’88, and Larry Wade ’64. Welcome aboard, all, and we look forward to working with you.
Volunteerism on the board is not confined to elected board members. All alumni are encouraged to volunteer on any of the four standing board committees (Working with Outside Entities, Financial Support, Alumni Engagement, Communications). Having additional voices allows those committees to do a few extra things that help both alumni and the school. Volunteers serving as Class Agents and Class Annual Fund Volunteers are always welcome too!
Volunteer to help us recruit and engage the next generation of future MMA alumni
Recent important activity by the Board has been to work with the Vice President of Enrollment Kim Reilly and Jeff Cockburn ’82 of Admissions as they develop an alumni-centric enrollment campaign that will fundamentally change the approach to developing interest in MMA by young men and women. This long-term approach to engaging the high school population earlier in their decision-making process will be key in continuing to build a vibrant pool of potential students and future alumni! The key board committee on this is Alumni Engagement, chaired by Mary Hutchins ’11. If engaging the youth and their parents in your area and developing interest in MMA is something that interests you, like all the other volunteer opportunities please reach out to the alumni office at email@example.com.
It is our level of engagement with MMA that keeps the institution strong!
